Putting Our Garden to Bed

Tilling the garden.

Tilling the garden.

On one of the last lingering warm days of fall, classes came out to the garden to help clear away some of the larger debris before tilling. Mike Zaransky, a new Westminster farmer came to help us “put the garden to bed” for the winter. He took time to talk with the Kindergarteners about the changes made to the soil. He even encouraged them to run through a section that he had tilled to see how it felt under their feet. Mike really helped to spread the joy of observation and change in our garden. We appreciate the time he took to share his love of farming.
